Introducing the FIFA Ultimate Quaran-Team Tournament
This is a 128-team tournament that is being played on the popular football video game FIFA 20. The tournament was organized by English League Two club Leyton Orient after leagues in the UK and worldwide were postponed due to Corina Virus.
Teams from leagues such as Serie A, the Eredevisie, La Liga, and all four English leagues, USA, Australia and Russia are taking part in the competition. The idea is to give the fans some entertainment while also raising money for lower-league clubs at risk of going out of business due to postponements.
As well as top clubs, West Ham, Man City and Newcastle United, teams from Australia, Russia, and even the US will all be competing!
The FIFA Ultimate Quaran-Team is a Knockout tournament, and draws be held at every round, similar to how the FA Cup operates. Therefore, with a total of 128 teams, expect like seven rounds of football action, including the Semi Finals and Final.
The tournament will kick-start on Sunday 22nd at 7 pm, giving clubs until the day before the planned date of the round of 64 to complete their opening match.
NOTE: Both teams involved in each individual fixture will liaise with each other to agree on a time to play. Individual clubs will then promote and stream their own games on their own channels.
